UNESCO IICBA Webinar: Education for Peace and the Prevention of Violence

February 13, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EAT


Since 2017, the UNESCO International Institute for Capacity Building in Africa (IICBA) has been working to strengthen the capacity of teachers across Africa on the Transformative Pedagogy approach as a fundamental strategy for peace and resilience building. Particularly in 2020, the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the heightened need to enhance resilience at regional, national, and community levels in Africa. With a belief that Transformative Pedagogy can equip the population with essential skills to critically analyze context-specific risks and opportunities for peacebuilding and eventually to transform the self and society, IICBA supported 28 African countries using the pedagogical approach over the past 5 years.

In completing the project, IICBA commissioned an external consulting firm to independently evaluate the project and draw lessons learned from its implementation. Based on the evaluation, IICBA is organizing this webinar to present an overview of IICBA’s peace education programme as well as some of the good practices from the participating countries!
